Hi Leo,

Thank you for the ideas. Keep them coming!

For this system, I have increased PHP execution and memory allowance 
triple the normal amount. There are other functions/scripts that I use 
that are much more processing intense than this "delete found records" 
script. And, there's nothing in the error log/access log of the server 
that indicates a time out. The server is set to show any and all 
warnings and errors (it's a DEV server). But I get nothing, just a blank 
page after about 30 seconds.

Just a point of clarification, in FMPv6, the script - and the resulting 
Web page - worked fine. I know that there are (many) new things to 
consider in FMPv11, including script execution permission. I'm working 
out the kinks in the upgrade. Aside from the additions to the FMPv11 
version of the script I mentioned below, am I missing anything else that 
might be causing the Web page hang up?

Many thanks for leads and suggestions,
